These five tales’ front covers featured in “Words with Jam”
Thank you to “Words with Jam”, for featuring these five front covers in its article on designing book covers:
by Jane Dixon-Smith of JD Smith Design. Jane designed my four novellas’ covers. She also did a super-cool job of both paperbacks’ interior designs, as can be seen via the “look inside” displays of
In both, the Rockwell font on the front covers is echoed in the running headers, footers, chapter titles and section headings of the printed interiors, around Franklin Gothic font for the text itself.
I’m looking forward to her continuing the same design scheme for the paperback interior of the upcoming Hollywood canyons novel, as well as for the covers of this novel’s print and electronic formats. In line with the imagery established on the existing five tales’ covers—featuring eyes, faces, and night-time skyscrapers in locations relating to the stories’ urban settings around the globe—the Hollywood canyons novel will include the Los Angeles cityscape and skyline. It’ll be named and released later in 2016.
The “Words with Jam” article appears in connection with the publication of Jane’s recent book The Importance of Book Cover Design and Formatting.
